If he lives by his declaration to reform, he deserves to regain his reputation, if not entirely at least in large part.


With all the words that have been written about Tiger Woods and his immense scandal problem, what it comes down to now is this:

If he lives by his declaration to reform, he deserves to regain his reputation, if not entirely at least in large part.

There was nothing more he could really say in his explanation to the world last Friday, which I watched along with millions of others. My inclination is to take him at his word — that he will reform.

And I can understand that he did not want a free-wheeling press conference to go over his lurid past. The statement he made was the only part of his problem that he could control, and he did.
He cannot control what others will be saying about him, especially the women with whom he came in contact.

It is now a matter between him and his wife, and may they come to an understanding which he backs up by living the life of integrity that he says he wants to do.
